It was definitely an exciting/fun fight to watch. I just don't think Choi is ready yet for the top dogs, especially if he just ends up getting into wild, swinging fist fights with his opponent and doesn't come out on top. That's basically what the fight became after Round 1... Just both guys swinging for the fence and hoping for the best I just noticed Choi trying to get back control on Cub, and Cub being able to turn it around each time. And when Cub was on the top, he wasn't really trying to just do damage on the ground. He wanted to get to a standing position and rain down punches which allowed Choi the opportunity to keep getting back up. On top of that, the few takedowns Cub was able to land near the end.
Choi has an amazing chin tho.. his ability to take all that damage.. then turn right back around and fire off some bombs of his own... that was incredible. I'd just like to see him to add to his arsenal and develop a decent takedown/clinch and ground game to go with that natural striking ability.
I agree. I hope Choi can focus more outside of his boxing.
